Abstract:By analysing the withdrawal process and the arrangements in the withdrawal agreement, the aim of this study is to determine the level of control for the United Kingdom after withdrawal on the basis of the British red lines. Findings show that Article 50 TEU and the backstop scenario complicate the authority of the United Kingdom to pursue an independent trade policy, the jurisdiction of the CJEU is even broader on the basis of the withdrawal agreement, a right on a freedom of movement only exists in the United Kingdom until the end of the transition period, and the United Kingdom shall pay a financial settlement that is considered to be € 38 – 42 billion in a period of payment until 2064. A negotiation of almost two years between the United Kingdom and the European Union has resulted in a set of withdrawal arrangements that create a controversial divorce. On a variety of areas the United Kingdom is able to take back control from the European Union, as the standards and regulations of the Union do no longer apply. However, as Europeanisation is not reversed easily and the European Union acted to protect the interests of the different Member States, the United Kingdom also continues to be bound by Union law in many different areas.
